Dominica Labour Party (DLP) candidate for the Soufriere Constituency, Denise Charles, has described herself as a nation builder.
Speaking at a DLP rally on Sunday she also took aim at the opposition saying they are tearing down and destroying Dominica.
“Brothers and sisters. you can expect that I will continue to build on the good works of the Honorable Roosevelt Skerrit-led administration,” she said. “I am a nation builder.”
But she had strong words for the opposition.
“These days when you turn on your radio, you may hear the opposition spending time planting seeds of destruction and tearing our country down,” she said. “Be careful my people, do not fall in the traps that they set. Do not let them divide this nation into pockets of hatred and spitefulness.”
She questioned whether “gossip and dishonesty” can actually build a nation.
“Do you believe that this constituency would be better off when they try to make enemies between you and your neighbours?” Charles stated. “No, my sisters, no my brothers, we cannot achieve progress if our main focus is to tear each other down.”
